Google Docs has tons of features and functionality that make it the biggest rival to Microsoft Office Word. In recent weeks we have taught you how to get the most out of this completely free program, in fact, the last thing we have seen is the way in which you can sign a document from your computer.
Now what you have to do is try to save yourself as much time as possible when writing any type of document. No, there is no magic formula that makes Google Docs write for you; But what does exist is a feature called voice dictation that you can activate within the Google app.
And, it is that, knowing how to use voice dictation to write in Google Docs is something basic that everyone should know and that, in truth, it does not take too long to learn to use. As always, the first step required to get this feature up and running is to have a Gmail account.
In the case of not having an account in this email system, we leave you here a guide with which you can learn in a simple way how to create a Gmail account from scratch. If you already have one, what you will have to do is search for Google Docs in your computer’s browser and enter the application.
Once inside Google Docs, what you have to do now is open a document, it can be a blank one or one already created since it does not matter what we are going to do next. Within the document, the next thing to do is click on the tools section found in the top bar of the Google Docs document.
When clicking on tools, a string of options would appear, among which voice dictation is shown to write in Google Docs. This is the long way to get this feature to work since, in fact, you just need to press Control + Shift + S to activate this feature in Google Docs.
Keep in mind that For it to work correctly, you must give the browser permission to access the computer’s microphone.. Having done all this, what I would play would be to start speaking clearly and for the program to pick up the words, thus allowing you to use voice dictation to write in Google Docs.
